Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

Ron, I have been emailing to your website for over 6 months requesting a reply every time. After 6 months I have never received a reply.
Don't your constituents deserve knowledge that their comments are read by someone, if not you? I believe our emails are deleted unread.
Your vote for healthcare reform confirms you don't give a damn what Oregon voters want done. You no longer represent us and do not deserve to be re-elected. You just don't listen or care what we want.

Re: “Spin, Doctor?

@D
Use the postal service much? No, it wasn't "free" to start with, but now it's self sufficient and a damn sight cheaper than "competitive" private enterprise.

Re: “Spin, Doctor?

"It's not taking choice away, and it's not a government takeover of the health care industry, which is what the insurance industry would like us to believe."

But the thick-headed don't get that is exactly what will happen as an unintended consequence of the government offering something for "free" which no company can compete with.

Re: “Death Spiral

What is the difference between assisted suicide and insurance agencies? One helps you die, the other lets you die.

Life is priceless, but in America, only money is sacred. Your health insurance would save a buck before saving your life.

If sense were common, politics would be obsolete.

Re: “Death Spiral

Ah the right wing of the country.
Whatever would we do without them eh?
Gotta give em credit, they sure know how to incite hysteria in the American public, not particularly known for above average intelligence.

Re: “Death Spiral

Death panels, why the fuck does noone mention the "death panels" on soo many insurance company's boards, which make it a STANDARD PRACTICE of DENYING care to their policy holders?!?!?! This is happening RIGHT NOW, with private insurance & HMO's!!!

Next you'll blame Oregon for creepy bow ties.

Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

Oooops...guess I'm not among friends here...just posted BEFORE I read the article and posts...sorry...ain't try'n to start a crap fight. Boys ...I really don't think that there is a sno balls chance in hell that anything remotely a " public option " is gonna fly. Maybe it's time to start look'n for the best " alternative " plans being proposed that are out there...and...IMO ( yep OPINIONS are LIKE ASS HOLES...EVERYONE'S GOT ONE ) ..." we " should'nt let this opportunity pass and another 20 years go by before the subject again see's the light of day.

Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

An Okie here...a bit to the right of Atilla Da Hun! BUT...while watching of all things MSNBC ( I spend most of a day looking for someone...ANYONE ...that's making ANY SENSE at all )... I saw YOUR SENATOR Wyden put forth a bit on his Health Care plan ...co sponsored by a Republican no less...that...actually sounds not only interesting but also is based on some COMMON SENSE. At least a good starting place? It messes with the virtual MONOPOLY the Insurance Co's have. With one lobby slapped down a bit maybe they could add something that would at least GET THE ATTENTION OF THE TRIAL LAWYERS?

Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

Wyden has been actively working on health care reform for THIRTY years, and what does he have to show for it? It's still damn hard to get timely medical attention that one can afford. What will Jake "The Snake" Roberts do when Jim Rose trounces him in a fistfight on July 7th at the Wonder Ballroom? Let's hope Bebe the Circus Queen knows how to give stitches.

Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

Howard Dean, for all his pluses and minuses, is not "Mr. Dean." He is a physician. If he does not presently hold an office, and you do not believe him deserving of any previously held title, he at least should be called by the one he earned: Dr. Dean.

Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

Wyden is a tool and an embarrassment. That's some great leadership there, jerk. "We have to pass something crappy in case something decent gets voted out in the future."

Jerk.

Re: “Why Not, Wyden?

Great work Mr. Davis! I think that this is the crux of the debate, and frankly, without journalists picking up the ball on this it won't happen. It is probably all to easy for Wyden to shove off interest groups as "DC lobbyist." But, if our local media could tease out the story it is a service to voters. Keep it up!

Re: “Not Dead Yet

"I know one thing, as a Black man, i certainly wouldn't feel very safe attending a summit like that."

In responses to DamosA, You would have been perfectly safe to attend this summit. This "am black and wouldn’t feel safe" is getting old.
